Upcoming drama ‘Dear.M’ to tentatively release in August 2021

After much speculation and delay, KBS produced drama ‘Dear.M’ has been planned for an on-air launch in August. The drama was supposed to be aired much earlier in February 2021 but was put on delay following bullying allegations against lead actor Park Hye Soo. Another contributing factor for anticipation is that it marks the acting debut of Idol Jaehyun, a member of the hit group NCT. The show is a sequel to the hit series ‘Playlist’, and spins a tale about young college students coming to terms with school, love, friendship, and life.


BLACKPINK’s Jennie in the clear, following allegations of rule flouting

Jennie bore the brunt of hate when it was assumed that she broke the rules of social distancing. Accusations flew when she posted pictures on Instagram, featuring several people having ice cream, on a trip to an arboretum in Gyeonggi Province. It has recently been confirmed that Jennie was on a special business trip, and therefore rules that concerned cancelling a congregation of more than 5 people, were not applicable. 


Oh My Girl confirm their full comeback in May!

After approximately a year, Oh My Girl’s agency WM Entertainment told media outlets that Oh My Girl will be making a comeback on May 10. Sources also stated that they will be back with their patent ‘spring fairy’ concept. Their latest hits include ‘Nonstop’ and ‘Dolphin’.


EXO’s Xiumin confirmed to be a fixed MC on the variety show, Night With Shin

According to Newsen, EXO's Xiumin has been confirmed to be a regular MC for the variety show ‘Night with Shin’, produced by SM C&C.
